From now till Halloween, Nintendo and Capcom have been nice enough to help us all get into the spirit of the holiday with some great deals on several Resident Evil titles. Resident Evil: Revelations both on the Wii U and 3DS eShop and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS eShop have been given a beautiful 50% price cut. With Revelations receiving praise from critics, on both 3DS and Wii U, and The Mercenaries 3D garnering a lukewarm general consensus, this shapes out to be a superb deal, considering the value and amount of content you’ll receive.
With 50% off, Resident Evil: Revelations from the Wii U eShop totals out to $19.99. Revelations and The Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS eShop, on the other hand, both come out to a glorious $9.99 each. Revelations takes place between Resident Evil 4 and 5, and hearkens back to the series’ roots of being spooky as hell while using some form of 4 and 5’s control scheme that works surprisingly well on the Nintendo 3DS system. The Mercenaries 3D uses the same controls, but in a more arcade-style action format, with a focus on challenges, unlockables, and online multiplayer.
This ought to be the perfect opportunity to catch a break from all the delight and joy of Pokémon, Animal Crossing, and Pikmin. One can only stomach so much before they need some ol’ horror to relax you and give you a great night’s rest.
